As cramped as Mumbai is, the city has quite a few great tracks to offer for those looking to run. Whether you are looking for a good run through a lush green park or a breezy jog by the sea face, this collection of the city’s best running spots should have you covered.

Marine Drive

Mumbai’s most famous stretch of road is the perfect location for early morning and late night jogs in good company. Located by the Arabian Sea on South Mumbai’s western coast, this airy promenade promises good views, breezes from the sea and an uninterrupted, almost four-kilometer long running track. The area gets very crowded later in the day, so be warned.

Covered with dense trees, rocks and mud tracks, this aptly-named park is perfect for city-dwellers missing adventurous jogs through the woods. Part of the Hiranandani Gardens in Powai, this park offers a little bit of forest right in the middle of the city.
